Ruth Mueller is much more than a pair of calming hands. Sure, the licensed massage therapist clocked 750 hours of bodywork training and offers an array of relaxing and therapeutic massages. But Ruth aims to give more than just an hour’s escape; her goal is to help her clients transcend their aches and pains and improve their overall health. To this end, she complements her massages—which include neuromuscular, sports, and deep-tissue modalities—with advice on posture and help creating ergonomic work stations. She offers specialized massages for affliction such as tension headaches and irritable bowel syndrome. And most importantly, she tailors every massage to best meet her clients’ needs, whether they have a sore back, tense shoulders, or muscles prone to freezing in flex-mode whenever security cameras are nearby.
